Jam In The Dam Updates: Packages, Music, More


JitD 2007 – Amsterdam by Sam Friedman
Jam in the Dam is now just two months away so there’s still time to plan your trip. Airfares are about the same as they’ve been since fall and tickets, while selling well, are also still available. Europe sales are ahead of any year to date, and the JitD folks are expecting them to make up nearly 40% of the crowd.

As a reminder, the concert schedule is available here.

A big congratulations are in order for Curtis Killian, the winner of the JamBase Flyaway to Amsterdam contest. He and a friend will receive round trip airfare to Amsterdam and two tickets to the show. Congratulations, Curtis!

Since the last update, Josh Phillips Folk Festival has been added to the show. They were also voted onto the boat for Jam Cruise this month, and are making lots of friends. The group will be raffling off a pair of Jam In The Dam tickets each week for the next six weeks, and each Sunday will begin a new raffle. Winners will be announced each Monday. The raffle will be through PayPal and you can enter here.

Additionally, Consider It Dan has added some new travel package options. You can now put a down payment on a ticket and pay the remaining balance by March 5. Soon, an option for just rooms will be available as well, if you already have a ticket.

The Canal Cruises will go on sale next week, and availability will be very limited. Same deal as always, $50 for two hours including open bar. As of now, there is only a cruise left on Monday, March 22. Check in at the website or message board for any additional questions.

The movie schedule will also be published soon, but expect multiple plays of Electric Apricot, in honor of Les Claypool being at JitD for the first time.

As previously reported, the 2010 event will return to Amsterdam’s Melkweg from March 21-23. Artists set to perform include: Umphrey’s McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band, Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Les Claypool, The New Mastersounds, and The Bridge. Brendan Bayliss and Jeff Austin will also perform as an acoustic duo.
